Over several series, Alan Titchmarsh's team from the popular ITV programme 'Love Your Garden' has transformed gardens throughout the country using a varied range of traditional and new products, some donated from GardenSite and all available online.
It was quite an honour for GardenSite to be asked to supply the Christmas Tree to Birmingham New Street Station this year, and to celebrate we're offering a Champagne High Tea to the winners of a seasonal selfie competition.
GardenSite partner David Coton was initially approached by shift station manager Craig Stenning back in June, and earlier this month we were delighted to deliver a magnificent 21ft Nordic Spruce to the busiest railway station outside of London.
New Street has 35 million passengers annually and was recently redeveloped as part of the ultra modern 500,000 sq ft Grand Central shopping mall which draws in thousands more to its superb shopping, restaurants and cafes
As both New Street and Grand Central are such busy places, we couldn't take any chances with safety, so we had to arrange for some stringent fire and risk assessments before spraying the tree with a fire retardant.
Now in place, fully lit and decorated in true Christmas style, thousands of people pass the tree each day and a quickly taken selfie might win two of them a Champagne High Tea at The Garden Room in Sutton Coldfield.
All you need to do is to take a selfie in front of the tree which is on the main walkway below Grand Central, then enter the competition by sharing the selfie with us on Twitter using the tag '@hallsgardensite' and a winner will be chosen at random.

You can create the spookiest Halloween Party in town with a spine chilling cast of para-normal misfits including ghosts, ghouls, zombies, vampires and many other sinister characters who inhabit the dark side.

In October, David Coton is getting the garden prepared for the onset of colder weather but, at the same time, the arrival of spring bulbs in the garden centre is a reminder that you should also now be planning ahead for next year.
